I’m Gone

I just got sucked out
And now I suck on to you
One has to drop out
The tie’s long overdue

Hey, don’t be surprised if with ease you let me go
Don’t feel surprised if offhand you write me off
Don’t look surprised if you point me to the door
That I’m gone
Until i’m back for more

You like me better holding on
Or fall apart?
Masters of second-guessing
Despise those who depart

 

Hold Don’t Fall

I found myself a word of advice
I never used, throughout my days
Solving one shit ravelled another
I sure hope it’s the last I’ll face

We are all just amateurs
But we’re doing our best
So I am ready
To break down again

Hold, don’t fall
Know it sounds like empty words
It’s not gonna work till we work it out
See you around next time

Don’t let go
None of this is what we asked for
It’s gonna work when we work it out
Maybe as well next time

I wrote myself a book of knowledge
I never used, but i’m telling you
Chosing one discards the others
I sure hope it’ll get you through

We are all just amateurs
But we’re doing our best
So are you ready
To hold me breaking again

 

The Simplest of Truths

So much music going around
So much music I can hear no sound
Some live it up in any place
Just make sure it’s no place for strays

Setting in and closing up
I’d rather not but I’m so deep under
Someday I’ll reach outside
Someday I will I don’t know yet how

Hey, leave me alone
I need a place to call my own
Hey, where did they go
In this noise I lost them all
Connections leading to the simplest of truths
All messed up, no time to look through

Keeping it strong can wear you down
Just make sure no-one sees me like that
Life’s but a sum of intentions and fears
No need to bring your tears to the list

Too much talking, too many words
Some got it all and I’m learning my first ones
All I’m trying and failing to say
Someday I will I don’t know yet how

Don’t leave me alone
I need a place to call my home
Hey, where did you go
in this noise I lost you all
Connections leading to the simplest of truths
All messed up, no time to look through
Lines unravel through the half of the world
And they point back to you

 

That’s What it’s All About

Now you’ve seen me wean
And you’ve revealed my hide
All I ever waited for
has it waited around
the bend?
I’ll land
I swear
Or hit the ground

Leading’s been misleading
When you’re led by the blind
Boy I wish I lasted for
Yet another round
Around
The sun
My son
Look up
That’s Brooks and Dunne

Can anybody tell me where the riddle is
One I’ve been trying to figure out
Led screens and fire in the skies
That’s what it’s all about

Can anybody tell me where the riddle is
One we’ve been trying to figure out
Singing girls and and lights behind the drums
That’s what it’s all about
to last for another round

Seeing is believing
And I just saw me stand
Joy of being on the roll
Enjoy the joy while you can
The same
Refrain
Look up
That’s Brooks and Dunne

 

So Naive

Babe get in the car
We’re leaving right away
To embrace the road
And to taste the air

So young
But lost all the time
So wrong
But still holding on
So naive it still hurts

We’ll start anew
We’ll make it through
You’ll be good to me and I’ll be good to you

It’s been such a funny year
So hop in, make a big escape
Where nothing bad can get to us
Heading for the better days

It’s funny how we thought it’d last
But it’s slipping through
It’s funny how we thought we’d change
But we’re still the same
So naive it still hurts

We’ll start anew
We’ll make it through
You’ll be good to me and I’ll be good to you
Cross your fingers not to let it through / So much wiser but can’t see the truth
Here’s the truth

 

A Hit for the Radio

I read it all
Studied it for so long
But I still haven’t learned how to lose
This kind of war
I don’t get it at all
How we could end up like this

Now it’s a cry for help
No-one will understand
Shouted right to your face
It’ll make a sing-a-long
A hit for the radio
Too nice to be sad

Some things don’t change
We agreed on that
Even if we try so hard
To leave this place
Not in ten years
We’ll be heading back towards the start

Now it’s a cry for help
No-one will understand
Shouted right to your face
It’ll make a sing-a-long
A hit for the radio
Too nice to be sad

How could I doubt you’d understand
Shouldn’t have sung it on my own
And now you know so make it go away

How could I’ve thought you’d understand
I should have sung it on my own
I should have kept it to myself
Is it really all I’ll ever get?

The smile on your face
Weakens defense
Too nice to be sad

 

Peace of Mind

All or none is the malfunction I have
What is yours? would you care to share?
Suffocating but still keeping it tight
Just to learn a few more shades of strange
I’ve seen all the shades of strange

All sorts of stuff is coming out in the dark
And you’re amazed I’d like to keep it a day
Aim high but don’t expect too much
So you still love them at the end of the day

We won’t get closer I know
It’s not our fault we want more
We run too far and we burn too fast
The peace of mind it never lasts

How nice let’s keep repeating the lines
Till we get everyone else to believe them
No dice it’s a festival of lies
So they still love you at the end of the day
Love me at the end of the day

The stronger I push the lower I crawl
How much lower do you think we can go
Snuffing the dirt with ambition to rise
The fight long lost in time

We won’t get closer I know
It’s not our fault we want more
Been here a while but ran out so fast
The peace of mind it never lasts

 

Twist and Turn

Washed out
Words left I could say
Lie down
Every other day
Twist and turn
Before I take a stand
Speak up
Twist and turn away

I’ve grown to make up my mind
Whatever there’s to decide
Why not just make it right
I thought I set out to find
Whatever there’s to be found
Why not just turn around

Reach out
Those who understand
Come and go
Come I’ll chase away

Reach out
Every other day
Lie down
Before I take a stand
Twist and turn
Twist and turn again
Speak up
Twist and turn away

 

Paths, Choices and Irresistible Mistakes

Threw away the stories from the wind
Worn off gentle touch of a dawning sun
Traded all for a comfort of a home
For what it’s worth

Can’t remember times you walked away
Can’t remember times when I was down
Lying helpless broken at your feet
All lost on me

You kinda want it
I want it bad
Still looking forward

Still reliving lives that once’ve been lived
Still rethinking thoughts that had been thought
Seen the signs and warnings have they led
To no effect

Can’t remember a single word of preach
Couldn’t count the times that I took wrong
Paths, choices and irresistible mistakes
Still there to make

You kinda want it
I want it bad
Still looking forward
It’s all ahead
